This is a test, only a test. Post a comment if you still look at my long lost blog. But not to confuse anyone my title is true. Not a joke. This was a little bit of a surprise, but none-the-less still excited :) I am 11 weeks and have been sick as a dog. Can't believe I will be a mother of 4.... good times! I really am going to try my best to post at least once a week. That is my goal. LOTS, and I mean LOTS to catch you all up on. Oh how life changes every day.

We decided to take our family to Disneyland for Bodie's birthday. We brought Grandma Dona along for the ride since we haven't been with her yet :) We had a blast. Got rained on pretty good one day, but still had lots of fun. Here are some pictures to recap the event...

A little bit of everything...

It's official that I have become the worst blogger known to man... I have no more excuses. I just thought since I finally loaded these pictures from my computer I would post them...

A little background on Bella's 4th birthday. I thought it would be fun to have all of her cousins and grandma's and grandpa at the house waiting to surprise her when she got home from school and have a little party... BAD idea. Note to self, Bella does not like attention on her, Bella does not like surprise parties. The girl had a nervous breakdown. She was crying hysterically for at least 15 minutes after everyone yelled "surprise!" She had her head buried in my chest for the next 30 minutes and would not look at anyone, wouldn't look at her cake, balloons, presents, nothing... It was quite the experience to say the least. But she is 4. And we won't forget this birthday for sure...

Next... Halloween. Pretty much this is the only picture I took. Kind of sad I didn't get any with Graham. Yep, worst mother award goes to, me! He was so cute, We were the Toy Story family this year (except Lance) Jesse, Buzz, T-Rex (graham) and I was alien head. Sorry no pictures of that either. We went to a few parties, trunk or treat and trick-or-treated at one house, Grandma Dona's. Highly eventful night...

This year we decided, actually Lance decided to take on Thanksgiving at our house... It turned out alright. Too much for me to do, I'd rather go and have someone else worry about the turkey and the big stuff, but Lance wanted to take it on. He did the turkey and it turned out really good. Me and Grandma Dona did the rest... Glad it's over. Feel 20 pounds heavier... ready for a diet.

We met up with some friends from Hawaii at Cafe Rio and all wished we were back in Hawaii in our little TVA compound... Really though, I so wish we could back to those days, they were some of the best times. We had such good close friends and I miss it so much. Not to mention can't beat living in Hawaii. good times.

Pictures anyone?

So I decided that I was going to post the most random post cause it's been literally months since I've posted pictures so in no particular order... pictures from Lance's Iphone :)

I have decided that I am no longer going to be a facebooker. There are a lot of reasons for this decision. For one, if you have noticed I don't update my blog EVER which really bugs. Two, I waste more time on facebook than anyone could even imagine which is so embarrassing to admit and that REALLY bugs. I could be doing so many other GOOD things with my time than wasting my life away on that stupid thing. And lastly, there have been a few things that have happened recently on facebook that just make me SO angry. I won't go into any of that, but to all you dwindling blog readers of mine, know that I will no longer WASTE time on facebook and be more diligent in keeping my blog up to date with pictures of my cute little monkeys that are growing faster than I can even believe. The End.

How to survive....

I'm sure I have nobody looking at my blog anymore, but to those faithful lookers I'm here. Sorry no, pictures right now, but I will do my best to get some up on here soon. Life has been short of crazy, actually I'd go as far as, insane. Just when I get all settled in my new house I think life is just going to be steady, calm, settled. OH NO! News flash, that's now how life works. Lance is still trying to figure out what he wants to do when he grows up. Thirst Express (his business) is going fine. Some bumps along the way, BIG bumps that has caused him to try to figure out if it's something he wants to continue doing. He is actually in AZ right now testing the market there to see if it is an area he could build like the one he did here. He has been gone for 4 days and I am MISERABLE! If you all forget, I have 3 kids that are the best three kids anyone could ask for, but they are 4, almost 3 and 18 months and I also have been very involved in a business called Doterra. Not to mention a not so easy calling in church, a house to clean that is too big, laundry to keep up on and I could keep listing things but the main thing is is I am having this struggle within because I absolutely love doing Doterra and am having so much fun, but I also have three children that require ALL of my attention ALL the time. No breaks. It is this power struggle within that I should be 100% a mom and at the same time really want to spend the time doing Doterrra. With Lance being gone I am exhausted. In the 4 days I've had major melt downs at least 6 times. You do the math, that's one and a half melt downs per day. No good. I try to be supportive of Lance's endeavor in AZ, but am so overwhelmed here that every time he calls I bawl. I know, great wife, right? We'll see how these next few days go. If there is any advice out there of people who actually still look at my blog let me know.
